Look for our hottest day of the week on Tuesday, with highs near 98-degrees...and "feels like" temps into the the triple digits. By midweek into Friday a chance... Continue reading

Ok, so the kiddos don't have many more days left before they head back to school. This would be the perfect weekend to head to the pool, the lake but not necessarily the beach. Dewpoints are expected to remain in the 60s all weekend long. Feels like temps should remain... Continue reading

What a difference a day makes! Our weather conditions are already sooo much nicer than they have been this past month. We are looking at highs only into the low 90s today. Dewpoints are down, so it's not going to feel as sticky out there. We began the morning with... Continue reading

With the exception of a few heat activated showers, it looks like the pool will be the place to be this weekend. Not so much today, with cloud cover lingering and a few thunderstorms pushing through. This weekend calls for drier air and more sunshine, but temps will begin to... Continue reading

We began this morning with just a few isolated showers in our area. We are not expecting as many storms to develop this afternoon than we have seen the last few days. Furthermore, I don't expect as many intense storms for our area. The slow moving frontal boundary that was... Continue reading

Instead of talking about extreme heat affecting us, strong to severe storms are today's primary focus. It will still be very warm, however, and that heat combined with elevated dewpoints and the presence of a stalled frontal boundary across north central Alabama will provide us with decent instability today. Look... Continue reading
